Why is Terminal not a "favorite" on a Linux WM? Whatever, I favorited it, and let the Software Updater do its thing. Is Python installed?

2p: Sir Bert and the New DM One-Shot Kicking around in my head the fact that there's a forever shortage of DMs, a couple months just one month back (it feels longer) I asked around about hurdles that kept players from DM'ing.
